Just before Sami walked down the aisle to see Ben for the first time, one of her bridesmaids grabbed her hands, looked her in the eyes and it slowed down all of the thoughts and emotions she was experiencing so she could truly take everything in. With the pace of a wedding day, this is SUCH and important practice and one that I love to provide for my couples when possible. It was a beautiful moment and it’s totally a reflection of the bond these two share 😍 #garrettrichardsonweddings #sonyA7RII #zeissotus

I love it when my couples sprinkle different types of furniture in their wedding decor. This lounge set was perfectly styling by @detailskristi and @tbdsandiego at @delcoronado#hoteldelcoronado #zeissotus #garrettrichardsonweddings #sonyA7RII ⠀⠀⠀

I love photographing destination weddings ✈️ When Stephanie and Derek invited me to capture their intimate wedding on the Big Island of Hawaii last summer, I was so honored. I knew how significant of a weekend this would be for their closet friends and family and am so grateful for the chance to step into such a joyful and sacred space with every one of my couples because each relationship carries such a unique story when two become one 💍 ⠀

Last fall, I had the chance to attend @travelinglightfilm in Spain with about 100 film photographers from around the world. This photo was taken of me while I was there and it was my first time stepping in front of a #wetplate camera which requires the photographic material to be coated, sensitized, exposed and developed within the span of about fifteen minutes. The photographer essentially brought a portable darkroom with him - it was amazing. ⠀

To get this image, I had to hold this smile for about 15 seconds - if I moved, it would be blurry and ruined. But luckily, it turned out great and I was one of the only people to chose to smile in their photo. ⠀

When was the last time you noticed a physical feature about yourself you liked before one you didn’t? ⠀

There’s plenty of times when I’m overly critical about myself: my posture can really bother me, when my skin breaks out unexpectedly, and sometimes my toes (I know that’s kinda weird but they can look normal one moment and the next have a mind of their own, haha!), among others. ⠀

BUT, one thing that I do love is my smile. And the more I keep my eyes on the One who made me, the less I focus on my ‘flaws’ - our smile is a direct reflection of something bigger that lives in each of us. I don't think we actually realize this in the moment but on a subconscious level, smiling causes us to forget about the flaws we think we carry and instead to be seen as who we long to be all along: loved and accepted. ⠀

It’s the child in us that wants to feel joy and I’m so thankful we have a perfect Father and that from the start, we carry HIS image 🙌🏻 #richardsonsroam #travelinglightphotography photo by @martiandinach
